For Donald Trump, there isn’t anything more beautiful than a large building with his name on it or several buildings with his name on it, all over the world.

Trump Tower Moscow failed and from we understand Mr Trump was very disappointed.  The Chinese Government understands Presidesnt Trump and what brings him joy.   The Chinese Government is extending a $550 million dollar loan to state-owned construction firm ,Metallurgical Corporation of China.  The company planning to build an Indonesian theme park that will feature a Trump-branded golf course and hotels.

Donald’s son’s Eric and Don Jr help bring this project together.  The project began before his election.

This is a win for all parties.  The Trump Organization, Indonesia and the Chinese government who gets the soul of America, for five hundred and fifty million dollars.Image result for the know how to play donald trump gif

 

Yesterday , the President said, he wanted to help China, the country ,he said was raping the United States.  Its important that we help China secure those jobs.

ZTE is China’s number two smartphone maker  Last year, the US imposed a  seven year moratorium on ZTE after the government learned the company’s role in moving US made technology to Iran and North Korea .

Many of ZTE phones are built around US made Qualcomm chip on the Android platform.  Making it difficult for the Chinese company to sell phones without the american software.

Alarm bells went off yesterday after the President announcement.   As the Intelligence community warned that ZTE’s technology and phones pose a major cyber security threat.

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Trump “Should care more about our national security than Chinese jobs.”

 

In a tweet, Republican Senator Marco Rubio said “The problem with ZTE isn’t jobs and trade, it’s national security and espionage.”

The Pentagon banned ZTE phones, the FBI urged American Citizens to steer clear of products fron ZTE and Huawei.

The absurdity of his new position on China isn’t lost on us mere mortals.

His desire to compromise the security of our country to expand his personal empire makes Russia more plausible.

But what does our intelligence community know?   What Donald Trump knows is that his Indonesian Hotel and golf course will be one of the best in the world.

Resisting Numbness


Image result for the back of Donald trump

When did the Germans know their country was turning left?

When the status quo was being dismantled, how many Germans turned the page?

Who stood up and said somethings wrong?

How many?

Time to study history.

The majority of Americans knew a President Trump would be a disaster. An American known for his hyperbole, a man who’s truth is questionable.

 Early on, in his administration, he turned on his lower income supporters who voted for him. His misstatements were irritants, his interactions with world leaders embarrassed us.

His love and devotion to Vladimir Putin is curious.

My Republican friends would say, yes, he lies. The Liberals are overeating, the House and the Senate will keep him in check.  That was last year.

In 2018 the bad news has increased five fold. The Tweets and the lies has overwhelmed my Republican friends. No one is saying be patient liberals or wait and see as they have quietly joined the chorus of what next.

His credibility is nonexistent, his supporters have hope. World leaders know, like Paul Manafort knew, to get into the Presidents good graces was to compliment him. (Nice aftershave) What he truly believes is based on the direction the wind is blowing or who last had his ear.

By the stroke of a pen, he has and continues to damages the credibility of the United States of America.   Our Commander in Chief is dismantling agreements put in other Presidents.  Anyone entering into an agreement with President Trump has to beware of disappearing ink.

The Presidents grasp of the facts or how government works is limited at best.   His single focus seems to based on keeping his small base happy.   To do this, he must keep his promises.   Its not important that he doesn’t know how those problems affects the lives of his base as long as he can check a public box.     One example of this is his proposed tariffs.  Which has the full attention of business, who greatly benefited from resent tax cuts.  They are very concerned about adding  tariffs and possibly creating a global trade war . This frightens Wall Street and business , who have benefited from the North American Free Trade Agreement and other Pre Trump Agreements.

This year, the negative news is coming out at such a rapid clip that many Americans have become numbed to the negativity.  There is less outrage to the daily news.   For a lot of us, truth and the facts doesn’t seem to matter.   Despite the outrage, the abuse of power, his children, his businesses. We do not see any form of consequences for this president, and to members of his administration.

Conventional reason says, the Democrats will take over the House this fall. The pundits and polls say’s its possible the Demos could take the Senate. These were the some of the same people who predicted Hillary Clinton would have an easy win over Donald Trump.

I’m not convinced the Demo’s have a lock on the house or a chance to take over the Senate. As they have an history of imploding.. While the Republicans have abandoned anyone under 40. The Democrats are assuming they will get their support. While I hear  that there is movement in Florida, there is little in the mid west and in those red states in the south.

I am encouraged by newly formed grass roots organizations who are registering new and first time voters.   Encouraged by high school students reminding those qualified,to  register to vote.  Discouraged by some patronizing seasoned Democrats who failed to take the temperature of the room of several meetings.   It was more about their agenda and less about the the attendees and needs of  their community.

We know the county is turning left.  What happened in Germany.  Did the citizens slowly accept the direction the county was going on.  What can I do differently?

President Trump Thanks Kanye West at NRA Convention for increase in Black Support


From Bustle.com Kanye West really does have power, at least according to President Donald Trump. While speaking Friday at a convention for the National Rifle Association (NRA), Trump thanked Kanye for supposedly boosting his approval rating among African Americans.

 

The president is referring to a presidential approval rating poll conducted weekly by Reuters, which on April 29 — four days after West tweeted his support for Trump — showed that 22 percent of black males approve of the job Trump is doing as president as of April. That number represents a significant jump from the 11 percent of black males who the poll recorded as approving of Trump’s job performance the week before.

But it seems like even Trump was a little shocked by Reuters’ most recent numbers. “When I saw the number I said, ‘that must be a mistake, how could that happen?'” Trump told the crowd Friday. “Even the pollsters thought there must be a mistake.”

Legal Chinese Discrimination in Sacramento

The Story is the same, individuals immigrating to the United States with the hope of having a better life.

Immigrants from China were unique, unlike other groups where families immigrated to the United States most of the Chinese immigrants were single males.  They were considered cheap labor, because these workers didn’t utilize hospitals and schools.  Chinese workers were often sought out because they would work for less.   At one point in California, Chinese men represented nearly a quarter of all wage earners in the state.

Some people believed Chinese workers  were taking jobs from white people.  Starting in the mid 1880’s there were laws created to exclude Chinese immigrants.  Communities throughout the west created statutes designed to drive out Chinese immigrants.   In 1882, President Arthur signed the Chinese Exclusion Act, this law prevented  immigration of Chinese laborers.

Shortly after the law passed some citizens took matters into their own hand to drive out Chinese immigrants.  Hundreds of Chinese were killed throughout the west.   The goal was to intimidate the Chinese so that they would return to China. With the law intact, many employers illegally hired Chinese workers.

In Sacramento, mysterious fires were set in Chinatown to drive them away.  Local newspapers wrote stories suggesting the Chinese brought disease to Sacramento.  Sacramento’s Chinatown was located on I Street between 2nd to Sixth Street.  The city was mostly successful in dismantling  Chinatown.  The Railyard covers most of what was  Chinatown.

Chinese immigrants played a major role in developing the Western United States, from the Intercontinental Railroad to Sacramento Valley Levees.   The Exclusion Act was remained law until its repeal in 1943.

This was an ugly period in America.  Lets hope we’ve learned from it.

make kenye west BLACK again

You can actually purchase this hat online.  There are “Make Kanye Great Again” Tee shirts. 

That’s America!  

I love that tweet. ” Make Kanye Black Again”

Kenya is a proud black man.

Kanye West is an American Citizen first and performer second.  As a citizen, he is free to join any political party he chooses.    However as a citizen and a performer, he risks alienating his fan base.

His support of President Trump is curious.  Many years ago Mr West called then President George W. Bush  racist, due  on his lack of support for the Katrina victims in New Orleans.  When President Trump and his father has a long history of discrimination against blacks and other minorities and there lies the outrage.

I agree with Chance the Rapper, when he says “Black people don’t have to be Democrats “  I think some of his fans  might forgive Kanye should he chooses to become a Republican.

The outrage is the support of an individual who’s has supported white supremacists, reportedly called African Nations shithole nations and systematically dismantling existing programs that effect  LGBT communities and People of Color.

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve never been a fan of Kanye West his talent is undeniable, I struggle with his narcissism , much like the narcissism of our President. However while I don’t agree with his admiration of Donald Trump, I admire his courage.   A few years ago I admired the courage of the Dixie Chicks.  You remember the Dixie Chicks.  Google um.

Who knows, Pandora?  Kanye West

WH Swampian Mick Mulvaney tells Bankers,he would only meet with lobbyists who paid

Mick Mulvaney, the former Congressman from South Carolina and interim Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, told 1300 banking industry executives on Tuesday that they should press lawmakers hard to pursue their agenda.

Mr Mulvaney, said as a member of Congress, “He would meet only with lobbyists if they had contributed to his campaign.”   We had a hierarchy in my office in Congress, “If you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.” At the top of the hierarchy, Were his constituents. “If you came from back home and sat in my lobby, I talked to you without exception, regardless of the financial contributions,”

Follow the Money 

Congressman Mulvaney, received $63,000 in contributions from Pay Day Lenders.

His predecessor, Richard Cordray levied fines and brought lawsuits to crack down on usurious business practices by an industry that offers short-term, high-interest loans that critics say trap vulnerable consumers in a feedback loop of debt.

Last January, Mr. Mulvaney put the brakes on a contentious rule.   He ended a case that the bureau initiated last year against a group of payday lenders in Kansas accused of charging interest rates of nearly 1,000 percent.   He also scrapped an investigation into the marketing and lending practices of World Acceptance Corporation, a lender based in South Carolina that  donated $4500 to Mr. Mulvaney’s previous congressional campaigns through its political action committee.

 According to the Center for Responsive Politics ,payday lenders have contributed more than $13 million to members of Congress since 2010, with the majority of that money going to Republicans who have made it a priority to roll back the financial regulations put in place by President Barack Obama after the financial crisis.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Law as a way to prevent banks and other financial companies from preying on vulnerable consumers.

Uganda’s President Wants to Ban Oral Sex, Says the “Mouth is for Eating”

“The mouth is for eating, not for sex. We know the address of sex,” says President Museveni.

By Damola Durosomo/Okay Africa

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has issued what he calls a “public warning” against oral sex.

The president claims the practice has been pushed on Ugandans by “outsiders,” and argues that the mouth is solely for eating.

“Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders,” he told the press during an address.

“One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex. We know the address of sex, we know where sex is,” he continued.

According to the Daily Mail, back in 2014 Museveni stated that performing oral sex could cause people to get worms. “You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address,” he is quoted as saying.

That same year he passed the “Anti-Homosexuality Act,” which makes being gay illegal in Uganda, and makes it a criminal offense to not report someone for being gay.

Though it’s sadly clear that Museveni is serious about his disapproval of oral sex, folks online have managed to find the humor in his comments.
